Biographical Summary

"Sir David Broun, knight, Lord of Cumber-Colltoun in the 23rd year of the reign of Alexander III. (1272), bestows parts of his lands in the territory of Cumber-Colltoun on the Superior of the Church of Holyrood at Edinburgh, for the soul of King Alexander, and for the soul of my lord King Alexander, his son...

...Sir Richard Broun relates that the Baron of Colstoun married the daughter of Hugo de Gifford, Baron of Yester, and as they were proceeding to church, the wizard lord stopped the bridal procession beneath a pear tree, and plucking one of the pears gave it to his daughter saying, that as long as the gift was preserved good fortune would never desert her or her descendants."
